Browning has added four new models to the Silver shotgun line. They are the Silver Black Lightning, Silver Matte Hunter, Silver Matte Hunter Micro Midas and the Silver Rifled Deer Matte.

Browning Expands Silver Shotgun Line

All of the Silver shotguns feature the self-adjusting Active Value gas system that diverts gases to operate the action instead of adding to the recoil. When shooting light loads out of the Silver, most of the gases are used to operate the action. With magnum loads, only a small amount of the gas is necessary to operate the action. The remaining gases are vented out the top of the forearm and away from the receiver for cleaner, more reliable operation. The results are faster, more accurate follow-up shots and all-day shooting comfort.

The Active Valve also allows for a wide range of loads to be shot out of the same gun. The 12 gauge 3″ models handle everything from 1 oz. field loads to the heaviest 3″ magnums. The 3-1/2″ model is built with a similar range, shooting everything from 1-1/8 oz. field loads to the hardest hitting 3-1/2″ magnum loads.
